I bought the 1/97's earlier in the week after cashing out a couple of shoes. I did everything I could to buy them at retail, so I can live with paying resale.
to be honest with you, i have some pairs i can offload to cover the cost of what i've paid for them, but if i didn't have pairs to offload & sell, i have what people like to call a lot of "disposable income" ...i'm blessed to work for a company where i can approve my own overtime basically & i supervise a large operation, so nobody ever asks why or how i'm working so many hours, example ... last week i worked a 14 hour day, followed by a 20 hour day, followed by another 14 hour day, in just 3 days... i also save a lot, would i have liked to pay retail, of course, but this shoe has been something i've wanted since i saw them design it on round two & i didn't hit on one raffle at all. last year alone i had 20k in overtime, not even adding in my profitsharing & metrics bonus.$700 probably ain't **** to them.
It's a lot of money to me so it's Retail or Bust
Yeah really wanna wear them but may try see if they will give me for 30 or dare say 20If you really want to wear it
Sure go spend $40
But I wouldn’t, I would do only $30
For example my size 11 Gold Toe
Was trying to find a size 10..... apparently not going to happen. So
lol thats already old news, i started the AM DLX thread already in december last yearAir max deluxe coming in 2018??
Because you were successful, was able to cop a wife on a quickstrike release, and copped a baby after taking W on wife release.I just got a pair of Toddler's 1/97 through SNEAKRS.
Why am I buying baby shoes tho.
Well they could have exchanged $700 for 4500 miles of transportation.How can people live with dropping $700 on a shoe. Do they convince themselves they bought like 3 kicks instead of one or something? What's the mindset?
No fightingI fight with holding the sw’s and elephants, on one hand, the elephants especially, are one of my favorites. On the other hand I like them so much that I haven’t worn them yet cause I don’t want to get them dirty. add the fact that these two combined are worth over a grand Makes it interesting. It’s also the hunt I enjoy.
I hope all is well with your Moms man...Im a sz 14 in everything like you. Would you say 14 is still good for you? Was going to try for a 13 after all of the size down talk.I got my SWs...they're dope.
Very strange sizing though as they do fit a little long (not as long as some people have said), but they're still narrow. I'd say 1/2 size down maximum. I'm fine with my true size though.
I was so excited for these, but after a family medical emergency, I just chucked these in the corner. Finally had a chance to try them on. Definitely more comfortable than your average AM1.
I get that but his $700 may be like $70 to you. Really no reason to care what someone else spends. If they have it and it makes them happy, cool. Now if they are missing rent or skipping meals for their kid, that's a different argument.I get that sentiment but it's kind of closed-minded too. If publicity stunts like that drive people to spend that much cash on shoes it'll come back and affect normal customers too because the brands want that buzz around them. That's why even OG colorways of classic shoes get released in ridiculously low amounts initially. Buying commodities for huge amounts of money hurts consumers because it signals brands that people are into getting screwed over.
Is there a am2003 thread?lol thats already old news, i started the AM DLX thread already in december last year
